Olmesartan is used to treat hypertension in adults and children who are at least 6 years old. It is sometimes given together with other blood pressure medications. Olmesartan keeps blood vessels from narrowing, which lowers blood pressure and improves blood flow.
Olmesartan is part of a class of drugs called angiotensin II receptor blockers. Olmesartan blocks angiotensin II receptors. This decreases the effectiveness of a chemical known as angiotensin II, which normally causes blood vessels to narrow.
